It seems nuts to train iron ore all the way to Indiana but I suppose there is a substantial bribe involved – tax breaks, free land etc.

Let’s see, try to start anything in MN, or WI, you get miles of red tape, taking years to negotiate, millions to just file the impact statements and permits, then the enviro-nuts come out of the wood work with lawyers to file endless injunctions and lawsuits. I can’t imagine why anyone would try to start anything new in either state. I think it’s time that these groups be held accountable, and be forced to pay the legal fees of the companies that they attack.

Here is what I find interesting. David Tomassoni was testifying in front of the MPCA about relaxing regulations that the Feds EPA wants to impose on the taconite industry. There the boy was, campaigning hard for Barack Obama, who is orchestrating the flurry of regulations issued by the EPA. Does everyone else see the same problem I do with this picture? Indiana has a faster permit approval process and has a more pro-business environment. Can’t blame Magnetation, especially when DFLer Joe Begich used to verbally beat up Larry Lehtinen when he was General Manager of Inland Steel in Virginia and when he came to the IRRRB for loans to start up Magnetation, of which has already built 3 facilities on the Range and paid back all their loans ahead of schedule. Joe Begich ran Rick Nolan’s campaign. Nolan is an extreme environmentalist.
OK, everybody. Why did Magnetation go to Indiana?
